Stretch Your Holiday Style: A Classy & Elegant Challenge

This is the last card I made today. I think I really went out of my comfort zone with these challenges. This one is for the Classy & Elegant Challenge at Moxie Fab. I pictured using these colors together, I think the purple gives it a rich look, along with the yellow & gold. I really had a hard time figuring out a good layout for this card that would make it look good. I am still not sure if I like it that well. I do LOVE how beautiful and sparkly the snowflakes look with all that glitter on them! If that's not elegant, then I don't know what is!! haha! Can you tell I love glitter?? Haha!
I took a lot of pictures of this one as you can see! I wanted to make sure and show all that luscious glitter and my unique ruffled ribbon trim. It's different, I think I like it. I was trying to go for that ruffled ball gown sheer look, along with the gold satin ribbon! My pictures turned out a little dark, I tried to get it to show better with editing them, so I hope you can see the ruffle. Like I said, the card is different, and I'll have to think on whether I like it well enough or not. I am loving the color combo though!

So what'cha think?? Is it Classy & Elegant? Maybe it's too much, hmm. So yeah, out of my comfort zone. But it's fun doing that and trying new and different things. I think these challenges are really fun. And like they say "stretch your style challenge", I am sure stretching my style! :)

So here's what I used:
  • Stamps: All SU sets- Snowflakes, Small script, & polka dots & paisley
  • Inks: SU- Eggplant envy, more mustard, & versa mark
  • Cardstock: SU- Very vanilla, not sure the names of the two different purples used.
  • Accessories & tools: SU-glitter, random ribbon I've had for a while, not sure where I got it from, I think the gold bow came on a gift I got, EK success corner rounder (yes, I use it on almost EVERY card I make! Haha! Maybe I will eventually tire of it. Probably after I am able to purchase some cool edge punches I will set aside the corner rounder for while). :)


  1. This is gourgeous!!! Definitely Classy and Elegant! Love that ruffled ribbon detail on the side, such a great idea, fabulous color combo too. Not too much at all, I am very glad to see your version of the challenges!
